It's usual that an accusation against reporters comes from the political right, whether alleging they're in the tank for President Obama or that they're giving Hillary Clinton a free ride on the Benghazi terrorist attacks. But now a charge comes from the political left, passed on by a professional news kibitzer, Media Matters for America. Its website carries an article titled "By rehabilitating Iraq War boosters, is the press forgiving itself?" Eric Boehlert, a staff member, argues that in the latest military crisis in Iraq, some television reporters have gratuitously given airtime to Bush architects of the 2003 invasion to dump on Obama.

At first bounce, Joe Shilling's resignation as state superintendent of education came as a breathtaking surprise. After all, why would anyone leave the top education job in the state in order to take over a small county system, and at a cut in pay?At second bounce, however, Shilling's step should come as no )) surprise at all. In the three years since he assumed the state superintendency, he has pretty much achieved the ambitious goals that he set for himself. And it's not in Shilling's nature just to hang around minding the store after the job has been done, the caretaker of a bureaucracy, so to speak.

The Sun just can't help itself from pandering for Barack Obama, no matter what, can it? President Obama has for the last few years repeatedly stated that "if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it. Period. " That pronouncement was not true and Mr. Obama either knew it or definitely should have known it. But as The Sun always does when it comes to your cherished President Obama, you justify him. Your editorial, " The cancelled policies (Oct. 31), spins this broken promise by trying to claim the real wrong is of course those evil Republicans and their allies who point out the lie. Despite Mr. Obama's statement being crystal clear in what was said and meant, your editorial claims "...it's clear what the president meant...it doesn't mean anybody losing 'quality' coverage they like.

Network TV never knows when to stop shilling, selling, hyping and hustling its audience. It's like a law of physics that whenever a network creates something of quality, it must always find a way to cheapen the product in trying to squeeze every last penny plus one out of it. That was the big story with NBC's pregame coverage of the Ravens 49-27 debacle in Denver Thursday night. The network's "Sunday Night Football" franchise is one of the epic success stories of prime-time TV, a winning hybrid of sports and pop culture programming that draws a larger audience than any sports program in history.

I saw a lot of Iowa straw poll coverage this weekend, and some of it was pretty awful. But nothing made me want to gag like this exchange between Mike Huckabee and Michele Bachmann Saturday night on Huckabee's weekly conflict-of-interest hour that Fox tries to present as a variety/talk show. Less than 48 hours after Fox News received high praise from me and other critics and analysts for its handling of the GOP presidential candidates debate, comes this sorry exchange. And understand, the praise Fox News received for Thursday's debate efforts was a result of the tough, journalistic questions posed by Bret Baier and Chris Wallace.

When former Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. chose for his post-political career a job heading up a new Baltimore office of a major corporate law firm from North Carolina, he opened himself up for legitimate criticism. The firm, Womble Carlyle, has a long history representing tobacco producers, and its other clients include big pharmaceutical firms, foreign corporations and some oil companies. This is not exactly working in a soup kitchen, and Gov. Martin O'Malley's campaign is well within its rights to question whether the Republican former governor has spent the last four years putting people first or earning big paychecks looking out for the interests of unsympathetic corporations.

With a background in urban search and rescue, Jenny Shilling figured she was a logical choice to take part in the county Department of Fire and Rescue Services' recent mission to aid the people of hurricane-ravaged Louisiana. Members of the unit - known as USAR - are trained in finding and extricating disaster victims. After making the 26-hour trip to rural Alexandria, Shilling and the other four members of the second relief unit sent in September by the Department of Fire and Rescue Services immediately worked an 18-hour shift.

Here is the first thing I see the other night when I turn on the TV: Jamie Lee Curtis rubbing her belly and shilling for Activia yogurt. "First the bad news," the commercial begins, "87 percent of this country suffers from digestive issues like occasional irregularity." Eighty-seven percent! No wonder the economy's in the tank and we're getting nowhere in Iraq. People are miserable! All they can think about is finding a bathroom. To emphasize the horror of this national calamity - only 13 percent of Americans are unburdened by digestive issues!
